Nvidia RTX 2060 Launched – Twice As Fast As The GTX 1060, Retails For $349

Nvidia has just announced the RTX 2060 at CES 2019. After months of wait following the RTX 2080 Ti, 2080 and 2070 launch, mid-range gamers would now be able to get their hands on Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 2060 with all the bells and whistles it’s elder brothers come with.

The newly-introduced RTX 2060 yet again would be able to captivate a large portion of the PC gaming community thanks to the fact that the RTX 2060 has been built with a ton of emphasis on Nvidia’s push for ray-tracing technology. However, it’s not all shiny without some performance metrics, is it? Well, according to Nvidia, the newly-introduced RTX 2060 is twice as fast as their last-gen Turing-based GTX 1060 and is even faster than the GTX 1070 Ti. This means that the RTX 2060 is well in the league of the last-gen GTX 1080, a GPU that barely managed to differentiate itself from the GTX 1070 Ti in performance.

It seems like someone has definitely been a good boy at Nvidia as the RTX 2060 lineup has been simplified… extensively. This year, the RTX 2060 is launching in one variant only featuring 6GB of GDDR6 memory along with 52T Tensor Flops. Regarding Gigaray metrics, the new Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 is capable of rendering 5 Gigarays/second. That’s considerably closer to the RTX 2070s 6 Gigarays/second that retails for around $499 right now.

To make the deal a fair bit cheesier for early adopters, Nvidia has announced that they would be bundling either Anthem or Battlefield V with RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080, RTX 2070, and RTX 2060 GPUs with the latter two users given the option to choose either one while RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti owners would be able to get both of the games.

Nvidia has announced that the RTX 2060 would be available on January 15th worldwide and would also be available with a number of board partners such as Asus, Gigabyte and MSI.
